I found this to be quite a fun series so far. Well, fun, probably depending on how one has been watching it. For what I had thought, or expected,.. "bouncy, trippy, yeah!" And ends up, "OMG, they can't be implying what I just thought they were implying!" Which you know what I'm implying. Or not. But either way your right. So long as you know what I'm implying. ...Or until you read this post till you go, "ah ha!" And throw me in a padded cell anyway.

Spoiler for Ep.1 question:

Really, a very good first episode. Honest.

Okay, so I took the plunge, and went for SF-S's sub of Rakisuta Episode 1.....

(-_-") <= And this, is basically my reaction for the main part of the episode.

Now, I'm not going to say anything negative about Lucky Star....because, in actual fact, it's probably not that bad. Instead, I'll pin the blame on myself; I'm probably the kind of person who just doesn't get that kind of humour.

Or to be more specific, it's not that I can't understand 4-koma humour, it's just that I'm the kind of person who doesn't see the point in it being animated. Really, it just looks to me like a collection of 4-komas animated, and thrown together to fit a 20-plus minute time slot; kind of a pointless affair, when I can get the same dose just by reading the original 4-komas themselves. And I'm not saying this just because it's KyoAni doing this; if it were by any other studio, I'll still say the same thing. I guess I'm just not the kind of person who can properly enjoy Pani Poni Dash, Azumanga Daioh, or Lucky Star.

I'm dropping this for now, but that's in no way whatsoever an indication that I think it's bad. Overkill, perhaps, but not that bad.

Of course, thats all the original Peanuts animated features were (animation of 4 panel strips in a sequence) and they were somewhat popular

No, there's nothing wrong with not being bitten by this bug but substitute "ero-game" for "4-koma" in your reasoning and you might think it a bit odd.

I kinda forgot to mention this on my first post about eps. 1, but I think Lucky Channel was probably the thing that made me laugh the most in this episode. I found that Dr. Jeckyl/Mr. Hide attitude of hers quite funny.



I mean, just look at that face.

Aye... it was a pretty slamdunk representation of "Its frustrating that I love what I do so everyone takes advantage of me"

Makes me think the execs in Japan are either just as clueless about the content they manage as in America or they figure this is good safety valve stuff for their staff.

For some reason, I picture Akira's seiyuu smoking a cigarrette while doing the "un-cute mode" part of Lucky Channel .

AHHHH! I wanted to mention this in my Ep01 writeup, but now I can't... lest I be accused of plagiarism.

NOOOO!

Say, could you tell a little more about this? She had a column that was canned? What happened? Just wondering more about who she is. XD

I thought the show's overall pacing was marvelous myself. Most yonkoma adaptations have a sort of beat, pause, beat, pause kind of pacing, but not this one. I really dug how the conversations just would flow naturally and keep going sort of stream-of-consciousness style, as you might expect a group of chatty high schoolers to talk, almost, rather than be divided up as much into discreet "acts". Not that there weren't those, too, of course. But it was nicely mixed and moved quickly for something that was such a slice-of-life sort of comedy.

I'm also a sucker for conversations about and perspectives of food, heh, especially Japanese food.

Um... she looks kind of ... deformed? O.o (obviously, ymmv, tastes vary)

I just like Kona's moppy hair and the way they draw her eyes (which is actually different than the others. The moppy hair and antennae remind of me of someone I'm rather fond of in real life I guess (who's probably about the same height as Kona looking at the characters around her... wait, she gave her height ... runs to check it out).

*shudder* Agreed about the supposed Kona likeness.

Kona's eyes, to me, are drawn in a way that always seems to not just look at the "camera", but also look out at the audience. Like she knows. It's kinda creepy, yet cool.

But...if anyone doesn't mind me asking (I hope I don't get in trouble even though I don't wanna cause trouble around here), why hasn't Lucky Star appeared on www.fansub.tv yet? Just asking!

Of course, now I'm at a loss since all the good Akira scenes have been GIF-ified before I got to it.
(Hey, those images look really clean. Which raw did you use?)

My interest piqued by the scene on the show, I just listened to Lucky Channel net broadcast a little while ago. It's a blast to listen to, even though I can't understand half of it. These two just have amazing voices.

I'm still wondering, though, how Lucky Channel is related to the rest of Lucky Star. Surely there had to be some pre-existing connection--maybe it's omake material in the Lucky Star manga, or the net show had scripts written by the manga author? Or are they totally unrelated and just an example of the amazing power of Japanese marketing?
